<!-- MAIN CONTENT -->
<p><strong><?php echo $project; ?></strong> is essentially an MSIE-Ctrl+Enter-esque behavior for mozilla.</p>
<h6>What?</h6>
<p>In Microsoft's Internet Explorer, one can automatically complete a URL typed into the address bar, by holding Ctrl while pressing Enter. Unfortunately, mozilla doesn't have any native equivalent (see <small>WONTFIX</small> <a href="http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37867">Bug #37867</a>). I don't like to wait for mozilla to complete the address for me...</p>
<h6>Usage</h6>
<p>Another bit of unfortunate news is that mozilla hijacks the ctrl+enter keystroke for it's own devices (I'm convinced that its out of spite). So you'll need a little retraining: to use addycomplete, hold <strong>Alt</strong> while pressing <strong>Enter</strong>. Additionally, addycomplete will cancel the autocompletion if you've already included things like "http://" or ".com".</p>
<h6>To Do</h6>
<ul>
 <li>make the override even smarter</li>
 <li>look into reclaiming Ctrl+Enter as the keystroke</li>
 <li>modifiers for alternate domains?</li>
 <li>uninstall?</li>
</ul>
